Welcome to Aspen Ideas’ New Website!

May 23, 2011  • Tricia Johnson

If you’ve been to the Aspen Ideas Festival web site before, you’ll see that we have a completely new look and feel.

It’s been a significant undertaking, and our goal, above all, is to make it intuitive for users.

Much like the festival itself, the site is sorted by topics that you care about: World, Education, Economy, Science, and so on. In addition to hundreds of sessions from the Festival, you’ll find facts, quotes, speaker information, and blog posts that tie Aspen Ideas content to topics in the news.

AIF new site

Here are some quick tips to get you started:

Watch: All videos and audio recordings are organized by topic. Click on a topic and sub-categies will appear, too.

Learn: Check out the Facts, sprinkled throughout the site, see useful, and sometimes surprising information about the Ideas you’re interested in.

Ponder: We’ve included compelling quotes from speakers. We hope they will inspire, shed light on ideas, and sometimes aggravate.

Search: It’s thorough and includes a filter to help you find exactly what you’re looking for.

And if you’re attending the Festival this summer, be sure to keep an eye on Festival Updates, where you’ll find “on the ground” information about the Festival.
